obama and governor romney campaigning in the same state but a different state but they are there together. we'll hear from them and show our brand-new fox news polls, what voters have to say about president handling the economy. why the only police officer in one town is in the cube? [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serus allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking cha
outspending governor romney and that is one of the reasons why obama is doing as well as he is in all the swing states. martha: what do you think about that, monica? >> well, that could be true. nobody really knows quite yet but it also, we could be witnessing the opposite effect. in other words these polls could be motivating a republican donors and the motivating republican base and independent voters now we believe we have to work that much harder. so while i do think that the enthusiasm gap does advantage republicans, if they take the polls at face value you will actually see a greater enthusiasm gap. if they believe they are that far behind they will come out in droves and actually i think money will start to flow in earnest. martha: it is interesting. article reading other day about the carter-reagan election, it outlined 10 articles written in 10 different states, most of them battleground states even then and it showed all of these articles that were written about how carter was way ahead. carter was way ahead across the board in all places. history is always sort of a good wa
and now independent and he does support president obama. governor, good to see you. to carl's point as well as lynn's and let's talk about this selection of paul ryan. you come from a state obviously with a very large older population, key voting bloc. they vote in big percentages. did he buy into, my choosing ryan, the medicare plan which now in every swing state shows not just that people favor president obama's approach but they favor it by double digits. this isn't even close. >> it's pretty stunning. i think the selection did make that a crystal clear choice between these two candidates. what's happening in florida, the latest poll has a nine-point advantage for president obama. and i think a large part of the reason is due to the medicare and social security issue. but i really think it comes down to something that carl was just talking about. this tape that was done of candidate romney when he was at the fund-raiser was extremely revealing and now has become terribly devastating to the romney campaign. and what it shows is, i think, a callousness and an attitude toward 47% of
candidates campaigning across the battleground state of virginia. governor romney in springfield, mr. obama in virginia beach. it is the third time in a week they are both hitting the same stage. shane deapril is the editor of campaigns and elections magazine. democrats are pretty confident about virginia this time. should they be, shane? >> we've seen some dueling polls out of virginia. there are some that show the president with a clear lead. some show the contest quite a bit tighter. but i think what you're seeing with amount of time both campaigns are spending in virginia it is such a key state when it comes to the electoral college calculation for both campaigns. essentially in my sort of electoral college predictor i have president obama at 237 electoral votes right now. so that means the three really big swing states, ohio, virginia, and florida, they could be really killers for mitt romney if he can't find a way to wrestle two of those away from president obama. if the president manages to get florida and virginia in his column, he is over the top of 270 electoral votes. if he manag
the battleground states. yesterday they were in ohio, president obama talking about the idea that governor romney promised details on his tax plan, economic plan, but hasn't been able to deliver on those details at this point. governor romney is talking with the details because they will figure it out. governor romney today pounced on the lower gdp figures of 1.3%. reinforcing his idea, his argument this country can't afford another four years of president obama and that he, romney, with a five-point jobs plan has the right prescription for economic growth. here's what he said. speak of those five things i describe will get america's economy going again. will help people find jobs who need those jobs. we'll get take-home pay to go up again. this is not a mystery, we know how to do it, america has faced challenges before when we have strong leaders. and we have people who know how to lead and where to lead, and im and we will. >> governor romney has had a subtle shift in the future of what this country would look like under a romney administration. he had been making this a referendum on obama, no
is not a high priority. >>> right now, president obama and governor mitt romney are fighting for votes in virginia. the two campaigns both made stops in virginia today.
in the obama camp or leaning that way. for governor romney the number is 206 with 270 needed to win. the president would have to pick up just 15 in the remaining toss-up state that you see on this map in gray. if the president wins ohio, governor romney would have to nearly sweep those toss-up states in order to win the white house. so no surprise that we find both candidates in ohio today. our campaign 2012 team is on their trail and we're going to start tonight with nancy cordes. nancy. >> reporter: well, scott, it all comes down to women. the president won among women by eight points back in 2008. it's a big part reason he won here. but today's poll finds he has a far greater advantage with women now, leading governor romney among women by 25 points. ( cheers and applause ) the president's support among ohio women has surged six point just in the past month. one reason can be found in their answers to this poll question: about which candidate cares about their needs and problems. 65% of ohio women said president obama. 33% said governor romney. tonda young, the glenford, ohio, de
tyrangiel. president obama and governor romney are chasing each other's shadows. for the second day in a row conditions are scheduled to have dueling rallies in the same swing state. today'rallies each in virginia ttit la un a president obama's campaign responding to romney's new straight to camera ad with one of its own a two-minute living room pitch airing in seven states. >> during the last wee of the campaign, there will be debate speeches, and more ads. u,yo lgoom or own w around the kitchen table, here's what i'd say -- when i took office we were losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month and mired in iraq. today i believe that as a nation we are moving forward again. >> yesterday in ohio, governor mney also seemedo be i a hhimself. morning rally he condemned the affordable care act as government invasion. >> he also thinks that the government can do a better job than you in the way you live your life and obama care is point number one. nt p bureaucrats between you and your doctor, believes the government should tell you what kind of insurance you have to have. >> the very same day, specifical
. bret? >> bret: mother jones released another video. it says, shows governor romney in another bad light. 1985 video. mitt romney's discussing bain capital's business strategy that included buying stakes in undervalued companies and then eventually harvesting them at a profit. obama campaign jumped all over that word. what what is the romney camp saying about that? >> the romney campaign came out quickly after that and said this d. "in addition to starting new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital turning around broken companies, creating and saving thousands of jobs. the problem today is that president obama hasn't been able to turn around our economy in the same way." we should point out harvesting is a common term in private equity, as in harvesting the investment. a manager i talked to said it's not a bad thing because at that time you have grown a company and created an awful lot of jobs. bret? >> bret: thank you. the economy went from bad to worse in the second quarter. that is the take-away from the new gdp numbers. chief white house correspondent ed henry shows us how
/ryan. there you go. >> governor romney says that 47% of americans will vote for president obama because they are dependent on the government. this has sparked a lot o reaconou whid ryn by that? >> yes. he was obviously inarticulate at making this point. >> joining me in studio is nbc contributor and daily beast columnist meghan mccain and son gh pic columnist wrotet re. a satire call piece about romney and ryan and spoke to my colleague jansing. >>aul ryan is treated like a surrogate. he doesn't get to cose his own staff. he has a sta l mitt romney around him every minute. he is told what to say and told what to do. that's fine as long as romney is winning. but romney is not winning. he's losing. esti candidate to act in his or her own way to unleash sarah palin to start attacking barack obama more. >> so meghan, as we all know. your dad certainly dealt wit tensions within the ticket of himself, sarah palin, for any o esendesgh behind the scenes there is ego, ambition, and the perception of what the voters see. do you think there is a behind the scenes strain that' going on because, as
in sales tax. stuart: is governor romney then responding to the attacks from the obama camp that say you just want to cut taxes for the rich and that attack line is working? so governor romney pulls back and says, oh, we're not going to cut taxes as much-- >> i suspect it has more to do with internal polls and people worried about the deficit and wants to show he's serious about the deficit. one of the things he's delivering immediately is, he gets elected president, bush tax cuts remain we don't get a big tax hike looking at 15% capital gains tax next year instead of 20, 25, 30%, 15% dividend tax instead of a 48%. and in the bush tax cuts exspiring translates into the biggest tax cut maybe in the history of america and focuses on that way, because the obama speed prevails. stuart: i just reported that the economy is 1.3%, 8 percent, you know the story. how do you explain? with na big economic performance, president obama still leads in the polls, especially in the key state of ohio. >> the way i explain it, media coverage that's off the charts outrageous, it's lying playing in basketbal
're a real fishman. [ male announcer ] humana. cheryl: turns out that president obama and republican governor scott walker have at least one thing in common, their disdain for the nfl lockout. a firestorm erupting on twitter after the controversial call after replacecement refs awardea touchdown to the seahawks in the final play on sunday night, both obama and walker tweeting for the lockout to end, and the new jersey senate president says he's going to introduce legislation because of course that's what you do against replacement refs altogether. peter barnes joins me now, i hear there's an end in sight. >> reporter: yeah, possibly. the leader of the nfl referees' association says it looks -- let me get it right -- it sure looks good for a deal with nfl owners, telling "usa today" this afternoon that negotiators have narrowed their differences and both sides are committed to getting it done but that there's no deal right now. now, the nfl declined to comment on an espn report that the owners and refs are close to an agreement in principle and that they're close enough that they have discusse
households is more than $26,000. >> woodruff: president obama and governor mitt romney were slugging it out again today on the campaign trail, both of them in the battleground state of ohio. and both of them mindful of the need to turn out younger voters, who went overwhelmingly for mr. obama in 2008, but who are proving more elusive this year. i traveled to the columbus area this past weekend ahead of the candidates to find out just how elusive. >> fired up! ready to go! >> woodruff: ohio state university students about to head out from an obama campaign office to register voters, yell a familiar refrain. >> fired up! ready to go! >> woodruff: they are a coveted voting block for the president, in this fiercely contested swing state. four years ago, mr. obama won 18- to 29-year-olds nationwide by 66% to 32%. a margin so large, young people were credited with putting him over the top in several key states. >> are you registered to vote? >> woodruff: surveys suggest he's sure to capture the majority of the youngest voter block again. but after four years of watching the president grapple with
shows president obama stephens the lead 50-44 over governor romney showing that candidates could be locked in dead heat at 46%. joining me to break down the numbers is fox news digital politics editor and republican strategist and former member, george w. bush's senior staff, brad blakeman. great to have you here. starting can you, brad, taking refuge in thed why there's bad methodology and lousy sampling in the polls. are the polls, in fact, questionable? >> well, we'll know soon enough, but i happen to think they are, and one of the reasons why i say that, lou, is because the modeling's being done on numbers of, like, 2008, where we had a high turnout, obviously, for obama, and, yet, the enthuse yam is not taken into account for the polls because we have a more enthusiastic base than the president. using the modeling of the turnout in 2008, and, yet, they say the enthusiasm for the republicans is at the all-time high. lou: which is the most accurate now given your reservation? >> i think real clear politics probably has the most accurate information. i urge people to look at la
the presidenti dwn they debate health .re the back and forth between president obama and governor romney on this issue will be i think fascinating. we'll look forward to that. >> yeah, erick's not. trust me. >> i'm looking forward to seeing how they debate. health care's a very important subject. >> yes, it is nk very much. roland martin, erickson, good discussion. in this sprint to election another pect of mitt romney's wealth in texas could become a hot political topic. you're going to find up with his quote i dig it. hey america, en though s ilisa rwearing them, the new depend silhouette briefs for charity to prove h great the fit is even under a fantastic dress. the best protection now looks, fits and feels just like underwear. we invite you to get a free sample and try one on too. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" when a flo of chestires atened a thousand american jobs... vo: tough on china? not mitt romn. it was president obama whoto up to china and protected aman worrs. mitt ry attaed obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our worke
states. >> big news today president obama may be pulling away from governor romney in the key states of ohio and florida. but is that true? we have in-depth analysis from karl rove, dick morris and the governor of ohio, john kasich. >> there is no doubt that the world is in need of a new order and fresh way of thinking. >> bill: mad man of iran insulting just about everybody at the u.n. we decided to turn the tables tonight and let miller loose on ahmadinejad. >> he is the impeerist do you df fuss. >> barack obama what do you think. >> it's all there in black and white. i hope the white part doesn't screw it up. >> our government is wiping its-[bleep] with the constitution. >> bill: new study out of the university of new hampshire celebrities saying dumb political stuff are hurting their careers. juliet huddy on that. caution, you where to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: i'm birl, thanks for watching us tonight. the status of the presidential race right this moment that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. this is is an important factor t
is on the key bottle ground state of virginia today. both president obama and governor mitt romney holding campaign rallies at the same time later this morning. romney will be in northern virginia, the president visits the south. this is the third straight day the two candidates have made stops in the same state. the fbi has not been able to investigate the crime scene in libya where the u.s. ambassador and three others were killed. agents even haven't reached benghazi. they also say crime scene has not been secured which may hinder the investigation. >>> and you might find the nation's newest millionaire in iowa, that's where the ticket was purchased that won last night's power ball drawing. several tickets sold elsewhere matched the winning number, but not the power ball. >>> this election is not just about the economy. it's about energy, too. which of course factors into the energy i know. in areas like ohio where jobs and manufacturing traditionally rank supreme, people are turning to a different source of income, and that would be national gas. fracking is short for hydraulic fracturi
a referendum again, but not on president obama. it's become referendum on governor romney and his policies and his statements and his vision, and his just, i think, basic outlook for the country, for hard-working families. i'm not sureow he changes that. go ntatat because it rlly is the one defining moment that's left for him. he's got to go into that debate and show an empathetic side that we have not seen. he's got to show vision and substance that we ve not seen, and he's got to rock the president. and i don't believe any of those d e n'hetink of in one debate. death is going to materialize around this campaign. at that time, they're going to say, listen, he didn't win that debate. this is more or less over. >> all right. chris kofini great to have you with us tonight. appreciate your ti on "the ed show." >>> coming up, now that the deadline has passed for todd akin to withdraw from his senate race in miourilookth, some republicans are making peace and getting behind his campaign. will the rnc follow suit? st tuned. >>> coming up, the gop starts circling the wagons around todd akin. we'
.b., thank you. >> thank you, charlie and nora. >>> both president obama and governor mitt romney will be there. recent polls in virginia show the president with a slight edge, but in two of the battleground states ohio and florida, the latest cbs news poll shows romney falling behind. as jan crawford reports, some are calling for their cashed at to pick up the pace. jan? >> that's right. conservatives are starting to get anxious when they look at some of those polls. i didn't pick up any of that. i did an interview with romney and none of that was measured and he skipped several chances to land blows and he said he had harsh words for the president, but he said i'm not going to play that game. >> this is a campaign not about character assassination, even though that's what's come from the obama camp by and large. >> character assassination. ? >> yea. >> has the obama kampen gauged in character assassination. >> they tried to completely misrepresent my point of view and the american people are interested in who will make their lives better. >> reporter: romney supporters are implo
obama and governor mitt romney. one of the big important things are the swing states. that's where you see the candidates going now, ohio, florida, virginia, new hampshire, florida, wisconsin, pennsylvania possibly. so you see a lot about these polls now. there was a big poll that came out yesterday that in ohio, florida and pennsylvania has the president up over mitt romney by as much as ten points. so the question this morning is, how is that data collected and is it done in a fair manner? >> brian: karl rove was on yesterday with bill o'reilly. he's the one who does it. he was the one who sat there when president bush was losing in certain states in florida, he was the one who sat there and said, that's not what i have. he also, same thing with kerry. he said the polling is different. he has an incredible intellect when it comes to this stuff. so we were curious and so was bill o'reilly. listen. >> for a very good reason. let's take florida first. got the white board for you. a little bit of context here. the biggest poll that -- the most important thing about a poll is its partisa
morning. let's put virginia in persiv,sint obama won that state after they voted for republicans for over 40 years. then two years after he had been in office, they elected a republican governor. today, t president will try to win virginia ba. present obama and mt roey cagn vni today where median income is 23% higher than the national average and unemployment is way lower, under 6%. like ohio wednesday, the president's expected to hammer romney for hisomments on the 47% of voters who don'tay ta >>on know how many of you will be with me this time around. but -- but it doesn't matter because i'm rning to be your president, to represent everybody. >> we're going to help those who need our help. we're a cpassionate peop >>or ryen points behind in ohio. that's a bigger gap than nbc and "the washington post" reported. no republicans ever won the presidency without winning this state. >> i'm going to win ohio. i'm going to become the next id bse ingo haup o people in ohio. >> reporter: the two almost passed each other campaigning traveling on the same road through ohio. ohio begins early voting
of the world. governor romney has been trying to assert that president obama is not strong enough on foreign policy. he hasn't supported israel enough. or not as tough as he should be with china. i'm not sure that's getting through. i wonder if romney might be better adviced to articulate in a more detailed way how he would change american and foreign and security policy and how do we deal with china, russia, get out of afghanistan with i have 68,000 men and tbhim uniform in afghanistan. the debate start as you know next week, it looks like foreign policy will be a part part of the debate in the campaign. i think it's healthy we discuss the issues. >> host: i want your comments from out there from the viewers. for nicholas burns who is up in boston. he's teaching a harvard. he spent 127 years in the foreign service. he's a former ambassador to they know. the numbers are on the bottom of the screen. we will read tweets as well if rtd ambassador. i want to dig in for a minute or two on iran. >> sure. >> host: and begin with a short piece the president yesterday about iran. >> the problem is no
the future. given his record, i have more confidence that president obama can get that done than governor romney camp. >> and again that entire program will be featured this morning on c-span. we are live now at the brookings institution for the start of this conference on improving education in the nation's school systems. this began just a moment ago, and speaking now is former secretary robert rubin. >> but that we believe highly germane to the hardship so many americans that i just mentioned. we believe that the debate about choosing between current job creation and growth on the one hand, and deficit reduction on the other hand is a false choice. deficit reduction enacted now with enforceable limitation of limited period down the road would provide time, hopefully, for recovery to take gold and could contribute significantly to that recovery by ginger in economic confidence and by creating a fiscal content that would allow a stimulus. more broadly, the hamilton project convenes to liberation of her aspects of our broader shorter-term duress, including stimulus and mortgage relief. bu
was in virginia beach which senator john mccain won by 1,000 votes. governor mitt romney spoke to veterans in northern virginia where president obama easily beat senator john mccain. the 13 electoral votes virginia used to be a sure thing. that changed four years ago with president obama the first hopeful to win that state in 40 years from the democrats. the latest polls give the president a slight edge. the real clear politics average has him leading governor romney by 4.5 points. most rates show the race in the margin of error. john roberts is live in springfield, virginia. john, governor romney today focused on the military and veterans in that area. >>reporter: he is working hard to put this back into the red column, talking to a group at the men legion post today. he told them about the potential effect of defense cuts in the looming sequestration saying it could result in the loss of 136,000 jobs here in virginia but it would profoundly affect military readiness and america's security. >> troubled and dangerous world we live in. the idea of cutting our military commit my by a trillio
obama and mitt romney go head-to-head in virginia today. in springfield governor romney criticized the defense on defense cuts. today he talked about specific alternatives. >> yeah, julie carey joins us to tell us about that. >> for many virginians with military ties, the president is also their commander in chief. governor mitt romney and president barack obama tried to make the case they would best look out for the interests of veterans and those on active duty. in an american legion hag not far from the pentagon, mitt romney directed a war of words at president obama. faulting him for the budget deal on capitol hill that will lead to deep defense cuts. and could cost virginia up to 200,000 defense jobs. >> when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> reporter: but even some romney supporters have urged him to provide more specifics about how he'll cut trillions and keep defense spending intact. he starts by scaling back health care reform. >> there are other programs that some people like, i even like that we're
. obama has an advantage on the economy in ohio, because basically, this state is a national success story when it comes to the economy. listen to mitt romney's ohio surrogate, governor john kasich. doesn't sound like there's much reason for ohio voters to make a change. >> you know, i hope you all know that ohio's coming back from 48th in job creation to number four, number one in the midwest. from 89 cents and a rainy day fund to $500 million, and we have grown 123,000 jobs in the state of ohio. our families are going back to work. >> governor kasich, you forgot to tell us where you stood on that automobile thing that was kind of big in your state, one in eight jobs are connected to the automobile industry, which, of course, president obama helped out with the automobile loan, which all you republicans can't stand. things are great, so vote for mitt romney, right? i don't think so. today romney launched a new ad campaign. according to the "washington post," greg sargent, this new 60-second television ad, well, it's going to replace all english-language romney ads in nine states. it's ano
is that according to the polls, is that we don't particularly have confidence in obama, but we have less and governor romney. this is not good news for the president. it's very governors. lou: basically what you're saying to me is, this president, who has blamed his policy failures on his predecessor, now has the wonderful advantage of running against an opponent who he can blame prospectively for the next four years. without even following the scenario. >> the thing that amazes me, i look at the polls and i see the country clearly wants change and they want someone new. they like obama. but they don't think he has been a strong leader. yet, they still will vote for him. that shows me that he has failed because there is no plan and at the end of the day, he has to be a salesman and quit talking about the president and talk about himself. lou: okay, talking about himself. we will find out how well he debates. is that sufficient? >> it's not a quick fix. he needs specifics and ideas and something that you can dwell on going forward that gives a credible and clear alternative. lou: we both
to the end zone? our pal ed rendell joins us. governor, can rom knney do anytg to turn this race around? >> number one, governor romney has to do a terrific debate performance, especially in the first debate. number two, he needs help. the obama campaign has to stumble or a current event that reflects badly on the president. i think the first is possibly. governor romney is a very good debater. he won almost all of the republican debates except south carolina. he's adept at debating and disciplined du disciplin disciplined debates and sounds like a president. he'll do well in the first debate. as far as the second thing happening, it's not likely. the obama campaign is doing a good job of staying safe of running out the clock. >> romney's fate is not totally in his hands at this point? >> i think so. the margin has widened enough so he can't make all that ground with a good debate performance. >> the candidates have duelling straig straight-to-camera ads out. >> president obama and i care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for the
. our families are going back to work. >> governor kasich, you forgot to tell us whe you stood on that automobile thing that was kind of big in your state, one in eight jobs are connected to the automobile industry, which, of course, president obama lped out with the automile anicll republicans can't stand. things are great, so vote for mitt romney, right? i don't think so. today romney launched a new ad campaign. according to the "washington post," greg sargent, this new -second television ad, we, oio rce enh-ngua romney ads in nine states. it's another attempt to soften romney's image. >> president obama and i both care about poo and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. >> he's sticng up for esident oba. mn h this video will have an impact. but there's another video affecting romney's campaign in a very much bigger way. >> and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll neveronvince them they should take personal reonsilitynd ce fo i br.e the hidden fund-raiser video where romney disparaged 47% of americans is not help
